In 1991, Obama’s Literary Agent Published a Booklet Saying He Was Born In Kenya
Just when you thought the next election would be about the issues...BIRTHIN' is back.
Yesterday, Breitbart.com got their hands on a publicity booklet from President Obama's literary agent back in 1991, before he was famous.
And in his bio, they wrote, quote, "Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii."
Jay Acton was one of Obama's agents at the time, and he says that most of their authors didn't write their own bios. But the non-athletes they represented were, quote, "probably" asked to approve the text.
So somebody got their facts jumbled, or twisted them to give Obama's "rags to riches" back-story more juice. And the website Breitbart.com DOES believe Obama was born in Hawaii. But either way...it's a nice piece of evidence if you're on the birther wagon.
